Pete has posted a couple of cracking photos of flying as the sun is setting up at Little Haldon. I have chosen one to head up our home page. Check it out. There are also some more photos of the club’s evening flying on our Gallery page
Hi everyone, actually no one saw the sunset last night as we had by then drained our batteries or gone home. Anyway a beautiful evening on the strip with a light NE breeze.
